Public Transport[edit]

Before 2003, the only way to go to Fernvale was Service 371 from Sengkang Bus Terminal. Now, the Fernvale neighbourhood is linked to the Sengkang Bus Interchange, Compassvale Bus Interchange and MRT/LRT Station at the town centre via bus services originating from the Sengkang Bus Interchange, Compassvale Bus Interchange and other parts of the island. The west loop of Sengkang LRT Line also serves the area, passing by 4 stops located within the neighborhood(Layar, Fernvale, Thanggam and Kupang). The service 371 was later replaced by 163 and 163M, where 163M is also acting as a feeder bus service.

A new bus service 50, was introduced to ply between Bishan, Ang Mo Kio, Sengkang & Punggol neighbourhoods on 15 December 2012.

Bus service 103 has been extended from Seletar Airport to Yishun Temporary Bus Interchange to connect the workers in Seletar Aerospace Park to Yishun Town. It also serves as an alternative service to Yishun and Serangoon for Fernvale residents living very close to Jalan Kayu.

Feeder bus service 374, was introduced to connect Sengkang Town Centre to Sengkang West via Anchorvale Crescent, looping at Fernvale Road outside Thanggam LRT Station.

The area is within the vicinity of Jalan Kayu, the proposed Sengkang West Industrial Park along Sengkang West Road and Seletar Hills Estate along Yio Chu Kang Road. Due to the construction of Sengkang West Road, a section of Jalan Kayu between Sengkang West Avenue and Yio Chu Kang Road has to be closed to traffic.
